Server is now LIVE.
We’re playing on the Ragnarok map
The basics of this map are about ¾ done, with a desert area coming in the next month or two. After that they plan to work on dungeons and underground. There are apparently plans for a very extensive tunnel system.
Here's a map from the most recent update. The area shaded red is still incomplete. The red dot in the NW is the location of the Market.
PA Server Details:
Ragnarok Server name: [PA] Dinosaurmageddon
Aberration Server name: The UnderARK
Password is the usual
Discord Server: https://discord.gg/jrUGGvM
The easiest way to access the server is to take the address, and add it to your favorites in Steams Server browser (under View > Servers)
Sometime in Oct we're supposed to get this new DLC where we explore a broken ARK. I will be adding a server to our cluster when this launches.
Reminder - over the course of the last year Wildcard has increased the ‘default’ rates for a few things, including taming. If I understand everything that has changed, this should put us back at the sweet spot we were running at last year. (perhaps a tiny bit faster)
Taming Speed = 5x
Everything involving babies (egg laying, growth, etc..) = 5x
XP = default
Harvesting = 2x
Wild Dino levels currently cap out at 210.
Imprinting settings are at default values. Because they scale based on the above settings, anything I changed would just make it harder to get a good imprint. Players are allowed to cuddle/etc… other players babies though.
Other settings of note:
Supply Drops and Loot
- Server is PVE
- Structure placement collision is off, even vanilla stuff will clip into terrain now.
- You can place S+ water intakes pretty much anywhere. Pretend you dug a well.
- Given that Rare Flowers mechanics are a thing now… there’s not much point blocking flyer carry. You can now pick up critters with your fliers and drop them in a taming pen somewhere.
- I’ve decided not to limit flyer taming, but I have left XP gain at default for now.
- We’re on a cluster, but the obelisk decay timer has been greatly increased. Anything uploaded should last about a year.
If I’ve done this correctly, Supply Drops will now also include currency and/or Element in amounts appropriate to the rarity of the drop. I have also added currency to the loot tables of Alphas, Giganotosaurus, Wyverns, and Bosses. Additionally, I’ve generally tweaked Supply Drops to be more useful overall.
In addition to adding Element to Supply Drops, TekBench will allow you to craft it for a moderate resource cost. It should also allow people to learn engrams without killing bosses. S+ also has some Tek stuff now as well. Between the two of them, we should be set for tek without needing to kill bosses. (although certain events will allow for easier boss killing)
